It eludes me how you came to that conclusion.

... then don't use black background or dark blue text?

Now, if you would make a supported claim that all terminals we install
use a black background by default, your change becomes more valid.

However, we then still don't know if people leave that default or use
something else, but we could make some educated guess about the amount
of people not changing the default.

My point, because I think this wasn't clear to you, is and always was,
how many people is this change going to be disruptive to.  And should
we make a hint to users when they install this version of Portage that
they can revert/change this by altering color.map (and how)?
